Michael McIntyre, the father of two small boys is himself the perennial kid. McIntyre is not just a funny face however. It seems this London native needs to sit down for a while. Maybe that is why this spring, six 45 minute episodes of The Michael McIntyre Chat Show will be broadcasting on BBC ONE. Michael will be interviewing three of his fellow celebrities for each episode.
McIntyre has done it all in comedy. Sold out arenas, Comic Relief, DVD's and even an autobiography. This spring he takes his quick wit and boyish charm to BBC One for his very own chat show.
Could Michael McIntyre be spread too thin? This veteran comedian thrives on the pressure and is hoping this new show will help kick start his brain for more material. Recently, McIntyre made a surprise performance at a celebration for his good friend Alan Carr. While there, McIntyre tried to get bookings for his new chat show. He reportedly asked around for suggestions on the guest list.
Will McIntyre be able to make the transition from highest paid stand up comedian in the world to interviewer to the stars? At a reported £500,000 for the show, BBC One is banking on it.
